    I’ve been to four, Gil (Paris, Quebec City, Venice, Santa Barbara). I’m surprised about Santa Barbara — “romantic” doesn’t come to mind when I hear the name. Maybe it’s cuz of that sappy soap opera? Buenos Aires is at the top of my “gotta go there soon” list — Sue

    I have managed to get to 4 of the places on the list, but have managed to get to Nevis 20 times. Just love this island! Very laid back, no crass commercialism, and very private beaches. One is even called “Lover’s Beach”, though the local name is a bit more bawdy than that (wink). If you would like to learn more about Nevis have a look at my website

    Hey Sue and Gil-guess us single’s have more romance than u old married folks. I’ve been to 7 of them.
    But they have left off tons of my R.F. (romantic fav’s)
    What about:
    The Hotel Valley Ho In Scottsdale with it’s HUGE champagne shaped tubs, being one of the only guests at a castle gite in southern france-home of the fois gras,or you can spice things up with a touch of exotica at the Carcosa Seri Negara, outside of Kuala Lumpur, or fell like royalty at one of India’s Taj Palaces — Lake Palace in Udaipur, or staying the the Bedouin “Camp” in Kenya-with it’s four poster beds, persian carpets, and cut crystal goblets, or getting the czar treatment eating beluga in bed at the Grand Hotel Europe in St. Petes, or strolling the romantic alleys in Brugges-a microcosim of all the best Europe has to offer, or…………

    Thanks for sharing. what a pity that i haven’t visited all those above mentioned sites to have a fair review of each destination; however, i have to say that Halong bay is a wonderful getaway for any travelers. Known as one of the world natural heritage site, Halong attracts visitors with its natural beauty that can not be seen elsewhere. It’s said to be the heaven on earth. It’s the most beautiful in the summer sunlight.
